A review of Merlin and the Dragons

Last night I read Uriel Merlin and the Dragons, by Jane Yolen. As we got close to the end, he interrupted me to ask, "What gender is Arthur?"

"He's male," I said.

"What gender is Merlin?"

"He's male, too."

"What gender is Vortigern?"

"Male."

Finally, in exasperation, "Who is female?"

So . . . my son, the feminist reader.
